Dearest Mavis was such a beautiful lady inside and out. We shared some wonderful memories because of granddaughter, Elise, who we had in common. We will miss her cheerful outlook on life and her loving smile. Greatly miss.

To the Pearson Family, especially Jerry and Kevin. I am so sorry for your loss. I have many memories of our days at the Harrison ball fields, taking the kids to Pizza Hut and of course time spent at Chuckie Cheese. We spent a lot of time supporting the kids as they played ball over the years. Mavis was such a sweet, sweet lady and it was my absolute pleasure to have known her. My prayers are with all the family during this time and may your memories of time spent together as a family be a great comfort. Always remember the good times, the laughter, and her sweet smile.

I am so sad by the loss of such a wonderful friend. We had so many conversations and she treated me as one of her own. My thoughts and prayers go out to her family. Her daughter has for a lifetime been a dear friend of mine. I'm here if you need me.
